Solutions for all your German Law inquiries


By definition, German law is a system of civil law that is founded on the principles laid out by the  Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany. Many important laws were developed before the 1949 constitution, but it has also been heavily influenced by Roman and Napoleonic law.


There are two areas of German law. Public law (öffentliches Recht), applies to people and the state and includes criminal law. Private law (Privatrecht) regulates the relations between two people or companies.


The law in Germany operates differently from the English and American law, so visitors or others who interact with German law often have problems understanding the system.


Whether you have a question about German employment law, German marriage laws, German common law or any other matter, a legal Expert is always ready to help you at JustAnswer, privately, promptly and inexpensively.


You can even ask follow-up questions, and approve payment only when you’re completely satisfied.
